Vintage year?

What year does a RV become vintage. My RV is a 1994 Monaco Dynasty, purchased new.

Or refer to it as "Pre-Vintage" until it reaches 20... ;-)

I just got my tabs and forgot to ask if they have Collators Plates for MH's? Dang
Mine is going on 34 so that must make it a collector. In Minn its over 12 years to become a collector car I believe. I know my 64 is one. It's almost as fun to drive too.
Either way Its old and still going strong.

For motorcycles vintage = 20 years, antique = 35 years.

This is somewhat earlier than cars, as motorcycles are less likely to still be going at those ages. Seem's to me RV's are in that same catergory. They die young or are neglected before they reach age.

Not saying there are "official" stakes in the ground, but for motorcycles the above is widely accepted. The various clubs use these ages.

In New Hampshire a vehicle is considered an Antique when it is 25 years old and that includes motorcycle too. There is a definition for a classic car, but that pertains to certain makes, a brief period in time and the radiator located behind the front axle.

So my 76 has a fiberglass exterior, I pulled the Orange shag out, separate shower form factory (was 2' X 2'), Refrigerator and TV from factory and a 50 AMP hook up. I guess mine is a high end Vintage.....LOL. Old TV cabinet is gone and modern flat screens in. Manual Jacks for leveling right now. Looking to put hydraulic in soon. Rear dinette bed replaced with just a bed and a 69 dinette bed put in place of the sleeper sofa......
Vintage is what you make it.

So they do have them? Is it like a car you buy one plate and that's it, no more trips to the DVM
